Default OMPHOBBY M2

This new heli is causing quite a stir. It is supported by many vendors in China. Right now the price is $249 with 2 extra batteries (3 in total) if you order before 30th September. The price is likely to revert to $309 soon.

It is made by Sunnysky motors and features a direct drive main motor like that in the SAB Fireball 280. Helis with a DD tail are by far the easiest to maintain and their performance have almost caught up with those with Belt or TT.

EndoDusk,

I saw your un-boxing video earlier on the other forum-very comprehensive.

I am looking forward to your flying video sir!

Neat little machines!

3.5 minutes is about right.

My batteries are around 11.5 volts after three minutes.

See the other thread https://www.helifreak.com/showthread...75#post7886383 about my statement about:

- China shipment options
- BG support quality (not so good in understanding proper English texts, limited 3-14 days rules for warranty / DOA):

I have received mine and 12 packs through it. The performance was absolutely stunning. The heli was very stable and precise at the same time. The tail held perfectly throughout moves such as multiple flips, tic-tocs, funnels, reverse and inverted flight. Given its power, it was particularly good at tic-tocs. But was quite precise with other moves as well. I was certainly not expecting this since I heard that WL Toys helped design the gyro.

It performed significantly better than the 150S, 180CFX and Fusion 180. It was on par with an Oxy 2 with micro Brain and 1911 motor. I would say that not only Blade, but Oxy and Align better watch out.

I believe that, at this moment, blade and align are beating up their computers trying to come up with their direct drive oxy2-dd and trex250-dd .
It's like the flybarless-dfc revolution. Once it is started, there is no going back.

Even the highest prized, million dollar quadcopter competitions have no tail rudder for 2-direction yaws. It is all main rotor's torque.

There is no reason Oxy and Trex and 700 competitions need to stay with a 2-direction, belted tail. The pilots just need to become good at using main rotor's torque.

. Totally agree! Sometimes it’s fun to build a heli from scratch and choose your setup, but that is super frustrating when it doesn’t work. The M2 just works! It’s nice to just fly through 9 batteries without having to fiddle with a troublesome setup.
